This reminds me of something I saw in Nigeria. On some unfinished houses, a certain number would be written on the outside wall, something like" BEWARE 4164". I asked my uncle what it meant, and he said the number was the department of corruption. It's supposed to a warning to those trying to pass off other peoples house as being for sale....
